The regular monthly meeting of the Mint Hill Women’s Club will be held Monday, February 11 at 7 pm. Socializing will be at  7:30 pm. Josephine Hicks will speek,  “What to do or say.”  The  local, award winning author and attorney  has won a Gold Medal in the Independent Publisher Book Awards, which included over 4,800 print books in the competition.

We all feel helpless when someone we know or love is diagnosed with a serious illness or is in a debilitating accident. Josephine will offer practical tips – things that are easy to do and are enormously helpful. She will present them with honesty and humor, as she does in her book: “If There’s Anything I Can Do – What You Can Do When Serious Illness Strikes.” Each chapter focuses on a topic such as communication, phone calls, food, visits, flowers, what to say or not to say, and other issues that face patients, caregivers, and their friends.

A lucky 50/50 raffle winner will get her book, which she is donating. The book costs $14.95 and is available at Park Road Books, at, and at

Josephine will sign books at the meeting and offer them for sale as well.=
